I have just been to the Doctor and gotten some inconclusive test results I guess. I am to keep a journal and go back after 2 months.
I went with the symptoms of being extremely tired/fatigued. To the point getting through a normal day is almost impossible. The fatigue is my main concern but other symptoms are there too - I probably wouldn't have linked them all together had I not read about hypothyroidism.
So my results cam back with TSH being normal (1.55 [0.25-5]), Free T4 normal (13.67 [9-20]), Free T3 low (3.67 [4-8.3]).
Now my question is - is 3.67 a lot under? or just under? would that bit under be enough for me to feel symptoms?
My ferritin was in the lower end of normal (36.81 [25-280]) so my Dr suggested I take iron supplement for the next 2 months as well as a multivitamin.
it turns out my LDL Cholesterol is a little up (2.74 [<2.59]) and my HDL cholesterol is low (0.69 [1.04-1.56]) and my BP was up a bit. this surprised me as I eat fairly well. I live in a part of the world with very little access to processed food. I eat fruit and vegetables everyday and wouldn't have a clue what or how to cut anything out without starving
If I still have symptoms in 2 months my dr will do more tests - I would ask for antibodies (to check for Hashimoto's).
